RARE HUGE Staffordshire THREE Color Transferware Enoch Wood Butterfly Border Platter 1830
Brand Enoch Wood
Attributed to Enoch Wood (The Father of the Potteries) this huge platter is simply one of the most beautiful pieces of transferware, ever! Unusual and rare, it is done in a three color process, meaning there are 3 different transfers, one over the other, each requiring its own firing and a very skilled transferrer for placement of the pattern. The depth and color (brown, green, blue) is magnificent. The pattern is known simply as "Butterfly Border" with each piece having a solid color border (red and brown borders were also produced) while the scenes on each sized piece depicts a range of pastoral settings including castles, lakes, cottages, horses and cattle.
